"Yesterday" Lyrics: Unknown - SUNG TO THE TUNE OF: "Yesterday" By Lennon / McCartney
All those backups seemed a waste of pay
Now my database has gone away
Oh, I believe in yesterday
They're not half the files they used to be
There's a millstone hanging over me,
The system crashed so suddenly
I pushed something wrong,
What it was, I couldn't say
Now my data's gone,
And I long for yesterday-ay-ay-ay,
Need for backups seemed so far away.
Historic Rte 66 "The Mainstreet of America"
John Steinbeck wrote of the Dust Bowl era in America,
when people were uprooted and travelled the fabled
Route 66 across the land, following dreams of milk and
honey, to California.
Merle Haggard, the "Common
Man's Poet"; Flatt & Scruggs; Bob Dylan; and Woody
Guthrie were all profoundly influenced both by the road
and its symbology, and by the power of Steinbeck's
Later Bobby Troup immortalized the road in song and
Nat King Cole hit with "(Get Your Kicks On) Route 66".
Rte66 is 2448 miles long (about 4000 km)
"It winds from Chicago to L.A." (Santa Monica)
Immortal words "Get your kicks on Route 66" were penned in
1946 on Rte66
Merle Haggard sings of The Road, The Dust Bowl, and ghosts of the past in "Kern River"
Woody Guthrie wrote a song "Highway 66 Blues" about The Road
"Oklahoma Hills" was written by Woody Guthrie, and stolen by his cousin, who hit with the song in the 1940's. Woody won a lawsuit recovering earnings from the song.
Nanci Griffith, Peter Rowan, and Emmylou Harris have all recorded Dust Bowl songs.
